Phew! Things are looking up!

September 29th, 2010 at 12:45 am

Got the call from the doctor today. My numbers are great. I DO NOT have diabetes or pre-diabetes.

I recently had gestational diabetes, and this is my first annual test for diabetes. (50-50 chance of Type 2 within 5 years after GD) I was very scared. I am so thrilled. It's a good start.

The new budget is also still working out, even with pricier needs coming up.

For instance, I bought Kid #2 his next car seat today. I found a highly-rated model 50 percent off. They were discontinuing that color. (Do people really pay double just to get certain colors? Not me!) Still have plenty left in the budget for the week for groceries, etc.

A friend I haven't seen since Christmas is also coming over this week, to have drinks and dinner after the kids go to bed. Frugal fun at home. No babysitter, cheaper food. Love it.

And, hubby and I are taking our first overnight camping trip with friends this weekend. Cost: $20. Free babysitter. It should be a good time.

    So happy your tests came back good! Keep working at your diet and exercise. You'll be glad you did. I know it is hard with two little ones, but it's doable and your kids will thank you for it.
    So glad things are looking up for you.
    Good going on the car seat. What color is it anyway?

    Something called charcoal, which is basically black and gray.

    Congratulations on that check-up! That is great news and it sounds like you have been diligent to keep DM from creeping into your life. Healthy eating and exercise really are usually the best insurance that leads those blood sugars to stay in healthy range. Way to go!
